Product Overview

Io, Jupiter's innermost moon, hosts mining colony Con-Am 27, a high-tech hellhole. There a veteran marshal (Sean Connery) probes some mysterious deaths of miners. In pursuit of the truth, he's alone. In Outland, writer/director Peter Hyams (Timecop, 2010) depicts a chilling extension of today's corporation-driven world. Dehumanization is vividly evoked in Philip Harrison's striking production design and two-time Academy Award winner John Stears' special effects. The spellbinding result is "a movie of unexpected pleasures" (Vincent Canby, The New York Times).

Review It is a very rare thing indeed when a writer and director can take a well loved genre like the western, take the essence that makes it popular and apply it to a completely different genre. This is what makes the film Outland so special. It is basically the same story as the well beloved western classic High Noon only it is set in a mining colony orbiting a moon of Jupiter...I could not have selected a better cast than is assembled here. Connery gives one of his best performances in his career here. Rather than being type cast as Bond, he grew older and embraced the different roles available to him. He plays the marshal straight from the hip, a modern Gary Cooper but far from an imitation...Director Peter Hyams has had a varied career mostly centered on the futuristic. On his resume are such works as End of Days, The Relic, Timecop and 2010: The Year We Made Contact. This has provided him the opportunity to work with very inventive actors and special effects people. Here in Outland he recreates the old west look and feel in a modern environment. The quarters are crowed, the bar noisy the working conditions almost brutal. You really get the feel that with human beings the more things change the more they stay the same. The pacing of the film is impeccable.
